PyCharm Edu 2019.2 Help

Navigating Through the Hierarchy of Methods

PyCharm Edu provides an easy way to navigate up and down through the hierarchy of methods. If a method is overridden by a certain method, or overrides some method itself, it is marked with an icon in the gutter area of the editor. When the mouse cursor hovers over such icon, the method information is displayed as the tooltip:

  • icons gutter overridingMethod: This method overrides a method defined by its superclass.

  • icons gutter overridenMethod: This method or field is overridden by one or more subclasses.

Use these icons, shortcuts, or menu commands to navigate to the corresponding points of origin.

Navigating through the hierarchy of methods

To navigate up and down through the method hierarchy, do one of the following:

  • Click the gutter icon and select the desired ascendant or descendant class from the list.

  • On the main Navigate menu, choose Super Method, or Implementation(s) respectively.

  • Press Ctrl+U or Ctrl+Alt+B for the super method or implementation respectively.
